    sugetions for an rc plane

    hello rc lovers , i am a young student fromMalta, (living there too) , iabsolutelylove rc any rc and spend every dime i got in plane , my big love !
    but i have a little problem , i know how to fly , as i an a bit of a beginner relatively , i got something round 6 months in simulator time but i have gotten use to flying at the rc park we got andthatsjust anabandonedrunway that was in use a couple of years ago , but as you can assume it had alotof air space .. but now we`vmovedhouse and now we live like an hour`s drive away with lots oftraffickedso it ends up being a very time consuming ... so we have a small field like 40metersby 30meters, also abandoned , i got aCessnatw-747 an it flies great with lots of air space but in confined ares it sucks as it has a very wideturningcircle , and keeps hitting things ...
    so fact is i`mconsideringbuying a new plane .. ! yay ! but i don'trelayknow what to get , i need something that can fly in small place with a good turning circle and that its not too fast .. since it's such a small area , it can get quite windy but not too much ..
    does anyone have anysuggestions??

    avgrech,

    That new place is a very reduced space.
    For that area, a small electric park flyer will be more enjoyable.
    I would not try anything with a wind span above 80~90 cm.

    Lighter will be better for slow flying, but no so good for windy conditions; hence, an intermediate compromise may work better.
    Select your power to be at least 100 watts / Kg.

    Best luck!

    I taught myself on a blade CP, but something with a coaxial rotor might be a bit better to start with.
    Good Luck,

    The way I see it, you can either work for a living or you can fly airplanes. Me, I\'\'d rather fly.

    RE: sugetions for an rc plane

    Twist 40 with an os 61 is a great plane for landing in a tight area. I land mine in a 100 ft by 50 ft. it's a fun fly airplane so it's lot's of fun to fly.
    Also hangar 9 ultra stick 40 with crow is great for spot landings. The crow is an air brake.
    You may want to fly these planes a few times in a larger area before going to a small field
